On Saturday, March 9th, more than 500 students and coaches from across the Northeast region competed in the Northeast Regional High School Science Bowl at the UConn campus. A total of 48 teams representing 36 schools matched wits in a Jeopardy!-style quiz bowl covering a dizzying array of scientific minutia along with a model fuel cell car race.
The event was hosted by UConn Engineering for the eighth consecutive year, and 140 undergraduate engineering students contributed their time to make the event a resounding success.
Teams from across the region, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island competed in an expanded, super-regional event that concluded with one winner each selected to represent the Northern New England region and the Southern New England region.
The winning teams were Lexington High School Team A in Massachusetts, and Connecticut’s own Glastonbury High School Team A. Both will proceed to the National Science Bowl® in Washington, DC in April.
